New York is an increasingly attractive city for tech companies, but it's missing one thing: Web Developers.

My name is Brendan Gamble, and I have decided to enrol in BrainStation’s Intro to Web Development part-time program beginning in January.
Let’s start by explaining where I’m coming from. My employment journey since graduating from King’s University College in 2011 with a BA Major in Economics has been anything but a direct path to a final destination. If you’re anything like most recent (or in my case not so recent) grads, you know the struggle of finding your fit in the workforce. Fortunately for me, my journey has included opportunities to extensively travel overseas and to gain experience working in sales, marketing, and analytics at a variety of different levels for some very cool companies. Currently I work in marketing and promo for a well-known energy drink company.
Another reason why I chose to take BrainStations intro to Web Development course was the power it gives you to create stuff for almost no starting cost, with the added benefit of having my creative pieces accessible globally. On a personal level, I am always looking for ways to express myself creatively, and learning how to code can be just that. Coding gives us the opportunity to create things for cheap and have it available to anyone with a computer and an Internet connection. It just doesn’t get any more beautiful than that.
I’m looking forward to beginning class. I know that these 10 weeks will be trying but I am excited to face the challenge head on!
